What I’ve Come to Learn About Learning

I’ve come to learn that I’m somewhat different than other people when it comes to learning. I’m there for the candy bar, not the wrapper. And yet, I understand it, after the fact. Let me explain. People Want Their Learning to LOOK Very Formal In my experience, I find that the best lessons I’ve ever […]

My Take on Inbound Marketing

I’m presenting at Hubspot’s Inbound conference today, which marks my second time there with about six years distance in between. Has anything changed? No. Yes. But it would depend who you ask. There have been some really smart posts about the future of inbound marketing. I want to give you a simpler take than all […]

Find Intensity

I’ll admit it. I’m obsessed at the moment with this video with CT Fletcher, Kai Greene, and Dana Linn Bailey. (NOTE: this video is FULL of curse words, so if you’re a bit sensitive to such, do not push play). I’m obsessed for a reason. I’m thinking a lot about intensity. The Vast Distance Between […]

Get Some Chris Guillebeau

There are few people who I think have the opportunity to start and maintain a cult. Chris Guillebeau is one of them. He’s so lovable, so damned addictive, and his ideas are YOUR ideas. He gives them to you and hopes you’ll do what he did: work and make them real. Pick up this book […]

How to Blog for Business

Writing posts on this blog has been a cornerstone of my business for quite a while now. I started blogging in 1998 (we called it “journaling” back then), but it wasn’t really until somewhere around 2005 that I started figuring out how it would be part of my actual business (and by that, how it […]

Build Your Home

It all started making sense a little bit at a time, and then a lot at a time, and then I really saw it all, in a kind of continuum. By spending a lot of time analyzing what people have said to me at various events, in my inbox, in between their “official” statements and […]

The Front Shop and the Back Room

If you look at chrisbrogan.com, it’s built for conversion. There are my courses for sale, other projects, and then some of the free resources (which are also built to convert you). This is the front shop. This is where people stop by. They get here via Google (The #1 search term lately for people finding […]

The Important Power of NEXT

I’m going through survey results as they relate to my recent webinar (now available on demand). Of the hundreds, who attended and purchased, I received surveys back from about 115. Of those, 111 people were positive to very positive, with some being effusive in their praise and kindness. Four people said fairly negative and disappointed […]

Comfort is the Enemy

All of my work seems to be pointing to the same direction lately. People are struggling. They’re running out of time, running out of money, running out of motivation. If I’m to take everyone at their word, they’ve “tried everything” and “nothing works.” And yet, what I see, more and more, is that “good enough” […]

How to Fail Your Way Out of a Hole – or What Separates Me From Most People

Jacq and I work well together. She has this uncanny ability to point me towards interesting things that end up being passions of mine. She decides to get back into lifting weights, and then I rush out and get fanatical about it. She decides to work promoting Visalus, and then I go nuts. Jacq’s given […]

War is Work, Not Mystery

When we get antsy, we stop what we’re doing. When we are unsure, we grind to a halt. In Steven Pressfield’s Gates of Fire, there’s a great speech given by King Leonidas to his generals before the night of The Battle of Thermopylae (the movie 300 also covers this, kind of). Here are just a […]

Why I Switched to Rainmaker

I recently moved chrisbrogan.com to the Rainmaker platform, because I wanted to work more on my business, and less on the details of maintaining a website. In case you’re not aware, Rainmaker is a hosted WordPress solution with a very customized back-end so that everything is a lot simpler and cleaner and easier to understand. […]

Buy The Right Thing

In case you don’t already get my podcast, I thought I’d stick a copy of it here to check out. I recorded a short little conversation about choices and price and value and how we sometimes make really silly choices that don’t make any sense whatsoever. Also, in this recording, I mentioned a webinar I’m […]

How Can I Focus Better?

The strangest of moments can bring you insights. I’ll tell you that for sure. Do you see the picture that accompanies this post? That was moments after winning a silly competition where I had to use a piece of uncooked spaghetti to spear six ziti noodles without using any hands. How did I accomplish this […]

How Do You Grow Your Business?

What we do mostly at Owner Media Group is provide solutions and guidance to help people grow their business in some form or fashion. Its a mix of professional, personal, and business development all mooshed together nicely into one package. When I ask people what kind of help they need, however, it’s interesting to hear […]

You’re Not Freaky Enough

Jacq was watching a rerun of Shark Tank last night with her mom and she came across Steve Gadling, who pitched his business to the Shark Tank. What was he doing? Drawing cats. Not very well, mind you. And just with paper and a Sharpie. And he wanted ten thousand dollars. Part of his pitch […]

How Do I Reach My Audience?

People ask me that often. “How do I reach my audience?” First, I tell them gently, it’s not your audience. Second, I tell them that reach is only part of it. Once they’ve seen you, they have to care enough that they’ll take a next step. From there, it only gets more difficult. But that’s […]

Is It Really So Weird That I Want to Tackle the Obesity Epidemic?

I’ve been working to support a 90 Day Health Challenge that works at the same time to help YOU deal with losing weight and at the same time, help kids battle obesity. Some people have asked me what THAT’s all about. Let me tell you! MOST Everyone We Know Needs To Get Healthier Continue Reading

100 Blog Topics for Your Business

Seven years ago, I wrote a post entitled 100 blog topics I hope you write. A lot of them still hold up rather well. But I thought it might be fun to give you a NEW list of 100 blog topics to make your own. Please feel free to share this list, but please link […]

Once It All Aligns

I’ve been so very fortunate. On my radio show, I’ve had great guests who all operate at the top of their various games. Through my private coaching, I’m able to work with people who are on the verge of offering great value to the world they serve. And daily, I meet more and more people […]
